Stay Cool: I Review A Seriously Expensive Cooler

Yeti Hopper flip 18

How much cooling power does the famous Yeti cooler have, anyway? (Not sponsored. Seriously.)

In This Gear Review Video You Will Discover:

  • How Much A Top-of-the-Line Cooler Costs
  • What You Get For Your Money
  • How Long the Ice Lasts

As the editor of Explore Magazine, I test a lot of outdoor gear. In fact, I turn down or farm-out most of my gear testing. It’s just too much.

Gear reps literally throw the stuff our way, hoping it’ll make the pages of our glossy magazine.

A lot of it does. Most gear is awesome these days. Maybe not all the stuff that clogs up Kickstarter, but when Patagonia releases a new puffy there is likely going to be little to complain about.

Yeti, maker of coolers, dropped me a line a couple months ago. They want to send us a cooler.

I was IN. This brand is one of the great “aspirational” brands of the outdoors world. Their coolers run $300, $400, $500 or more. For a cooler!

So I really wanted to check it out.

How good are they, anyway? Rather than a simple evaluation, I put the Yeti Hopper Flip 18 through its paces big time.

Check out the video. It took me DAYS to film. You’ll see why.

Oh, and I know it’s hard to believe in this day of selling out, but this is actually not sponsored. Just a classic, unbiased gear review. Enjoy.
